Telescopic comet Leonard - 24.11.2021 at 06.20 - 24.11.2021 at 08.05 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 102499

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

An interesting encounter was known in the morning when the brightest comet of the moment visited the galaxies passing by the nickname Whale and Hockey Stick.

The Spanish sky looked a little uncertain but luckily it was so clear so I was able to take up to an hour and a half of the comet still brightening.
This time I put a tripod to follow the comet.
There was some to do with the reading that got the comet and the stars and the others ‘drunk’.

Edi: I took a closer look at the comet image and decided to try the Larson-Sekanina filter for image processing. So I came up with a couple of shower types that I think even turn around a bit.
